Astrid is really getting excited about Valentine's Day. It's one of our faves. Maybe it is yours too? We got Astrid's assortment of Valentine bandanas up in her Etsy shop a couple of weeks ago...
The orginal inspiration for my afghans was when my granddaughter asked me to crochet her one in her ASU school colors. I don't like piecing things together, and while I admire so much the work of...
Cross stitch hand embroidery, also known as 'chicken scratch' is fun and easy.
Astrid will be ready for Summer and all of it's parades and picnics in this handmade dog bandana.
For several people that supported our shelter dog efforts all year, I crocheted a Santa.
I love the look of my table set with crochet sundaes and fresh dahlias.
These adorable little girls were crocheted using a pattern from K and J Dolls. I posted them on Facebook for Friendship Day.
This little piggy serves no purpose except to be a pleasant thinking of you gift. How easy can it get? Hand embroider something the recipient really enjoys in life onto a piece of muslin, sandwich a...
I've been experimenting with crochet doggie sweaters lately. Pictured are the three I've completed so far. The pattern is for all one piece but I prefer the tummy strap with button closure for...
I love the look of these 1920 Cloches. The pattern was easy and free from Lion Brand.
While looking on the 'net for stash busters, I came across this fabulous book mark tutorial. Because I make a great deal of dog bandanas and dog collars, I end up with lots of long, narrow pieces of...
This spring hat was knit on a round loom with 100% cotton yarn. The crochet flower has a pearl inserted in the center.
Learning to use my new Brother embroidery sewing machine is proving lots of fun. This is my first ever completed project. I've learned a little about stabilizers and a lot about hooping.
Sometimes I like to pick up some yarn and a crochet hook and see what happens. This little crochet Valentine goodie bag was crocheted in two pieces.
I love to knit whether it is with knitting needles or on a loom. These cute hats were knit on a 9.5" circular loom with two strands of yarn held together. Hearts are crochet.
For some reason, all Charlotte restaurants think 55 degrees is a good thing and the draft from the overhead vents was ruining every meal out. I made this simple mesh shawl from Red Heart soft blue...
I've added another ruffle scarf to my collection. This one was made to be a November present for my sister.
This crochet green mesh scarf is approximately 48 inches long. A pretty little dahlia flower adorns each end.
In each of these bags, the two fabrics are fused together.
This is a reversible, shoulder carry tote bag created in a Mexican folklorico Dias de los Meurtos cotton print.
This handcrafted bag is made from a Mexican folklorico cotton print. I had never heard of the Day of the Dead until moving to the little Mexico/US border town of Nogales, where we spent 12 years...
This is the fourth in my collection of ruffle scarves that I'm creating.
I love to crochet ruffle scarves. I'm working on a collection with these three finiished thus far. I have two more I'm working on to complete my collection.
